Step By Step Guide

Renting a property should be a straight-forward process.  We hope this guide will help you in your search and will show you how the process works from start to finish.

Viewings
Having discussed suitable properties with you either over the phone, by email or in person, we will arrange viewings for you.  We will try to show properties to you at your preferred times but please be aware that we may have to consider the wishes of a current tenant.  Having seen the property, if it is not suitable please tell us why.  We will then be better placed to help you in your search and also we can advise the landlord of your feedback.

Placing an offer
Having completed a viewing, if you would like to rent the property then please let us know the details of your offer.  Important points we will need to know are: 
  • The rental amount you are offering
  • The term for which you would like to rent the property
  • The date you would like the tenancy to commence
  • Any other requests which you would like to form part of the agreement
  • A little background on your employment details / studies
Once we have the details of your offer, we will contact the landlord of the property and discuss the details of your offer with him/her.  Once we have discussed the offer we will contact you to inform you of the landlord’s thoughts.  If your initial offer is not accepted then you have the opportunity to amend and re-submit it.

When an offer is accepted
When the landlord has accepted your offer, in order to move forward with the process we will ask you to pay a Reservation Fee, normally equivalent to 1 week’s rent.  This will be held by Thames Lettings while the references are completed and tenancy documents drawn up.

Referencing
In most circumstances the references will be carried out by an independent referencing agency.  You can complete the reference form online and if you have any queries you can  simply speak directly to the referencing company.  Once the references have been completed they will be sent to us and we will then send copies to the landlord for his/her approval.  The required Right to Rent checks (as part of The Immigration Act 2014) will be carried out as part of the referencing process. For more information on Right to Rent requirements please see https://www.gov.uk/private-renting/document-checks

Documents 
While the references are being completed we will draw up the Tenancy Agreements and associated documents for your new property.  We will normally send these to you by email but if you would prefer us to post them to you please just ask.  We will ask you to return the signed documents along with copies of your identification at your earliest convenience.  

Payments
Included with the documents will be an invoice detailing the amount which needs to be paid into our account before the start date of your new tenancy.  This will include a deposit, normally equivalent to 6 weeks’ rent, the first month’s rent, Tenancy Agreement fee and referencing fee.  The Reservation Fee will be deducted from the amount due on this invoice.

Deposits are usually held by Thames Lettings as part of the MyDeposits tenancy deposit scheme.  


The start of your new tenancy
Normally we, or your landlord, will arrange for an independent Inventory Clerk to meet you at the property at the start of the tenancy.  The Inventory Clerk will list the items in the property along with a note of their condition.  They will also take utility meter readings so you can be assured you will be billed correctly for the utilities you use during the tenancy.  In due course you will receive a copy of the Inventory Clerk’s report for your safe-keeping.  Once the clerk has completed the visit he/she will hand over the keys to you.

The end of your tenancy

When you leave the property an independent Inventory Clerk will again visit in order to list the items and note the property’s condition.  The clerk’s report will be used to assess if the property has been returned in the same condition (barring any fair wear and tear).  You will then be advised if it is proposed to make any deductions from your deposit.  


We hope this guide has been useful to you, but if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.  Further information on renting can be found in the government's How To Rent guide.
